started the fire instead of trying to put the fire out. >> we tried to get change cpi, and harry reid took it off the table. and the president claims he wants change cpi, but is harry reid more powerful than barack obama? >> that's a good question. >> no, it's not. no, harry reid is not a more powerful guy. but i do agree in the end, if the president will stop demagoguing, and if he'll stop running a presidential campaign, a permanent campaign that david brooks is talking about, al, i think you're right. i think the president, at the end, may actually make some decisions that will upset his own base, change cpi, on hopefully -- hopefully he won't take paul krugman's position and say we'll worry about medicare in 2025 when it starts to melt down. hopefully he'll be a little more responsible than that. i think he will. >> yes. >> but the problem, i think, goes back to mika's point. in all of the attacking the president, he has a plan on the table. you can say is demagoguing. the revenues that he's putting on the table from the taxes add up. the republicans have just come back saying, we're n
a budget since the 2nd of april 2009, since harry reid wouldn't put one on the floor you. can't blame the republicans for this. democrats own two pieces of three that make government work. the republicans happen consistently passed budgets, attempted to put things before the president and before the senate. harry reid won't bring it up and the president has time to do is go out and blame republicans for what's wrong this. may happen. it will hurt a lot of people. about it doesn't have to. if the president would step up and be. >> what's up on the show tomorrow? we're going to talk about cyberhacking and it's affecting a lot of people. george bush, he gate code was hacked into. this is a serious issue for america. we have a lot more, but, by the way, sissy houston, whitney's mother will be on as well. >> from benghazi to the border, a new survey showing 40% of americans consider illegal immigration a major cause of unemployment. this is the white house and a group of senators push to legalize as many as 11 million illegal immigrants. bad timing? byron says, out of touch. >> there's a n
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean? [mooing] >>brian: steve was recruited off the future farmers of america's rosters. >>steve: i was back in the day. >>gretchen: are you from kansas? >>steve: yes, i'm from kansas. >>alisyn: i didn't know you are on some sort of farmer's bulletin board. >>brian: then you married kathy, a city girl and brought her to the cou
been humiliated by his own people with the plan "b" debacle. and he tells harry reid to go [ bleep ] himself. >> harry reid looks up and he says, what? excuse me? and boehner says it again. >> hey, listen. senator reid and i are close friends. we've got to work together. but just like any close friends, sometimes you just need to clear the air. and we did. >> i can't imagine that happening. >> oh, gee. oh, that's never happened on capitol hill before, has it, michael? >> i was talking about between us. that's okay. >> that would never happen. so michael, take us behind the scenes. here i suspect pass is going to be prologged several times in the future. >> well, exactly right. when i look forward to the state of the union address tomorrow night, i'm looking forward to seeing john boehner and joe biden sitting behind barack obama, especially after what i learned in the last six months digging into the fiscal cliff story and beyond. it's just fascinating, you guys. the personalities and the clash in politics that surround it. we got pretty deeply inside of it and a very good intervie
checks. that's helped them win more elections in red states and people like harry reid get elected in nevada, a pretty pro-gun state. the question is, is that going to be productive for people who want to see gun control get passed? will this mean an increased prag ma tichl, mean that the issue has a better chance of getting through? >> and what's the answer to that question? do we know? >> i don't have a crystal ball, but if you talk to people who support gun control, they have been beaten down for a long time, losing consistently for 20 years will do that to you. and they feel better than they ever have. there is, as you know, a lot of momentum behind this issue. a democratic president who has the bully pulpit who is using this on his agenda and now we have even some republicans coming to the table and signaling that there may be some kind of bipartisan action that can get through congress on gun control. that would be the first time since the brady bill in 1993, if that happens. >> molly ball from "the atlantic," thank you very much. >>> first lady michelle obama will go to chic
of pressure not only directed at republicans but the number of democrats. by harry reid who i think will rather not bring up a vote on the assault weapons ban. the president was able to move the needle and say look, you're going to vote against something that's fine. but at least be on the record. tell the american people why you have a straight up-or-down vote. i do think the chances of gun control are much better. they don't have to require -- to have a vote in the senate. if they can get a straight up or down bill, assault weapon ban passage, john boehner suggested he may not approve some of the proposals to the floor unless they have majority support. assault weapons ban won't have majority ban. if people support gun control can get the up-or-down vote, they may find some success. that's where it is smart for the president last night. we all talked about the merits of gun control and what not. the process needs to allow the american people to keep members of congress on record on this issue. >> stephanie: thank you for calling me from the train bathroom to have this incredible c
of representatives, went over to the senate and unfortunately harry reid not only didn't vote on the house version but the senate hasn't put forward its own proposal. i would encourage the president to work with harry reid and senate democrats to put forward their own alternative and hopefully go to conference and negotiate something between the house and the senate because both sides agree that it's better to use a scalpel than a hatchet. >> you're describing something there's just no way is going to be done in 48 hours so as much as you're optimistic -- >> i'm noptimistic. >> that's charming. >> chris frates with "national journal." i have a story the republican leadership wants to see if the sky falls, they will need to negotiate on sequester, if the cuts are not that bad they think they get some leverage and can roll the debate on the across-the-board spending cuts into a larger one about the debt ceiling this summer. is that a prudent way for house republicans to go forward on this, taking a wait and see? shouldn't your leaders be showing more leadership here? >> well i'm not sure that wait a
the sound bite from majority leader harry reid but he said he grew up in a town filled with brothels. you know he's from nevada near las vegas area and so he's used to quote salty language and so this didn't offend him but he said, wolf, that the speaker should know who is sitting on their posterior. if this is the language they are using before the cuts go into effect this may be a more exciting story. >> how effective has the president been in delivering this hard hitting message basically totally blaming the republicans for refusing to compromise? >> well, the goal here is to make this really feel, make americans realize how much this will hit home and how much the budget cuts will impact their own pocketbook. the latest polling shows that's had mixed results. right now 60, 6-0 percent of americans believe these forced spending cuts will hurt the overall economy. only 30% think it will have a major impact on their own personal finances. and politicians, insiders, both democrats and republicans tell me they think more americans have to really feel it in the pocketbook before democrats a
override -- harry reid yesterday said the nra is just one organization among many. we listen to them but that doesn't mean we follow them. can we override the nra on these background checks? will we this time? 866-55-press. one other gun-related item that caught my attention that i find disgusting, this headline in "the new york times," got the whole article because i clipped it, it bugged me so much the most wanted gun in america. you know what happened up in newtown connecticut on december 14th, this union gunman broke into sandy hill elementary school, takes out his ar 15, mos down 20 innocent 6 graders, some of them shot 10, 11 times action with that ar 15, also mowed down and killed six innocent teachers and supervisors there at that school the police say that's the weapon he used, the ar 15. so what did we do about it? what did americans do about that? did they turn in disgust at that weapon, that semi automatic assault rifle? did they say this good shall beould be banned because nobody needs a gun like that to defend himself or her family? we did the opposite
case to see if they can use the public pressure, west virginia and harry reid in nevada to do things they might not otherwise want to do. i'm extremely skeptical. people have tried this in the past. no doubt the obama folks have a better organization and social media gives you advantages you didn't have in the past but they're trying to do something i have not seen signs they are willing to do in a non-presidential election. >> i do think, michael steele, the republicans will see the president talk on guns tonight and see the victims of newtown. i think that's going to cut through. we've all had these moments and said the union addresses ab had these moments and maybe there won't be an assault weapon ban and maybe won't go after thes a 99 high capacity magazines. but republicans will have a hard time saying no to background checks and saying no to gun trafficking laws. if they do say no to these items that are 9010s, we used to go around the hill saying it's 8020, 80-20 negative. if it's 80-20, that train's coming an you get out of the way. this is 90-10. my question is will republic
was what harry reid is incapable of doing, making something pass out of the senate that actually counts. we just keep getting deeper and deeper in debt. it's the most disappointing thing in my life. >> what's going on in washington? nothing. >> the whole idea of putting political capital together is to spend it down. >> you are about as cynical as i am about what's going on in washington, d.c.? you really don't think they're capable of doing two things at once. >> not these people. >> how does it look to the average person? it's almost like the government is in permanent divorce court. ♪ >> would you consider possibly being future senator barney frank? >> oh. >> i told the governor that i would not like frankly to do that. >> i spent a career carrying m-16 or m-4 carbine, i personally don't think there's any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets. >> problem solver, committed to fix, not fight. >> not fight. >> it's all attitude, man. it's all attitude. ♪ >> i said see you at thanksgiving dinner, my dad e-mailed me, he was worried you were coming. >> i actually contemplated comin
's aware of these reports and is doing what it should in its own process. senator harry reid, the majority leader, says whatever investigation should go forward, but he backs bob menendez. savannah? >> kelly o'donnell on the hill for us. now here's matt. >>> gas prices are rising again this morning, the national average jumping another cent overnight to 3.53 for unleaded regular. also a 17-cent hike in just a week. tom costello takes a look at the reasons why. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. yes, we hear you in california and new york and illinois and vermont. we know you're paying a lot more there, of course. you can blame a lot of things here. for the beginning, refinery shutdowns, a shift over to summer blends and a perception on wall street that the economy is picking up. it is all the talk from coast to coast, those pump prices. >> i don't even want to like know the amount at the end of the week because i don't want to get depressed. >> i'm going to drive a lot less for now, i know that for sure. >> you're wasting like 60 bucks a week. >> reporter: several refineri
a, quote, filibuster. it won't be a filibuster, but they're forcing harry reid to basically go and get 60 votes to confirm hagel. >> why is that? >> why are they doing it? >> why the change? why the change of heart? >> well, i think mccain has gone back and forth. i think at the beginning he suggested that he might try to block hagel's nomination. then he defended him the other day when the criticism really got out of bounds. and now he's back to saying he may try to block it. but it feels like reid will get his 60 votes. >> he's going to, but willie, they keep going back to benghazi. by the way, listen, we've said here clearly the white house screwed up, the state department screwed up, it was hillary clinton's low point. they asked for security in benghazi. they didn't get it. the ambassador asked for help. he didn't get it. what does that have to do with chuck hagel? >> well, john mccain has been trying to get answers from the white house about benghazi. i think he sees this as a moment of leverage now. he can hold this up. he's got a bunch of republican senators who will fo
't gotten anything with harry reid that can pass in the senate. he said i'm going to put it on congress to try to come up with plan, what he calls a balanced plan for more revenue as well as additional spending cuts. and from that conversation earlier that i had with alan simpson and erskine bowles, i heard from them both sides need to have pressure applied on them, the white house thinks we don't need as many cuts as simpson and bowles do and the president is saying no more revenue, and simpson and bowles saying, no, we need more revenue. today they even set a bar higher than they had in their commission report for additional deficit reduction. i asked them how can you ask for more when we haven't even gotten what you originally recommended. here's how they responded. >> well, we learned the hard way with our commission. the tougher we made it, the more support we got. either go big or go only home. >> we're going to have to push the white house on health care, we're going to have to push the republicans on revenue. >> go big or go home, that's their mantra. we'll see whether congress
